All Saints, Pavement, is the Guild and Civic church of York. It is also the Regimental church of the Royal Dragoon Guards. As a result there are many special services held each year at the church

Hymns of Resurrection.

For the season of Easter we are highlighting various "Hymns of Resurrection" during Evensong at 6.30pm.  The next hymn for April 29th is "O sons and daughters" (15th century).  A full list of the hymns and a poster can be downloaded here.

  Stained Glass Window  

On 2 July 2015, a new stained glass window created by Helen Whittaker of Barley Studios was installed in All Saints Pavement Church. It remembers those who died in Afghanistan especially Matthew Hatton, David Hart and Ashley David Smith. The public gave donations, via The Press, York's newspaper. On behalf of the families and the church - thank you. Rev'd Jane Nattrass Priest-in-Charge.

On 1 October 2015 , the window was dedicated by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu. Later that day, Barley Studio received the Master's Award for Craftsmanship awarded by the York Guild of Building. 


On February 4th after the morning service we celebrated with Ken and Pauline whose Diamond Wedding Anniversary fell on February 8th.  They met in All Saints Church when Ken was a young man in the choir.  A toast was offered to them and they were given an ornamental plant.  Thanks was given for their many years of service to the church and it was good that their son and daughter were able to join them.  They are pictured below first with Churchwarden James Finlay and then with Joanna Finlay and Derek Earis.



Both the 10.30 and 18.30 services are sung services and are supported by the choir. The church has a strong choral tradition.

There is also a said service of Holy Communion at 9.00am on Sundays. Our services each Sunday use the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer
